3D MATRIX COATING
PART #: AT-V1-50L
An one-step high performance nano ceramic coating that features all the benefits of 3D Matrix Coating. It is designed to cure faster especially in low temperature environment.
Based on a patented Polysilazane technology, it offers high gloss finish, super hydrophobic effect, chemical resistance, UV resistance, thermal resistance, stain resistance and anti-graffiti effect.
- Permanent bond
- >9H pencil hardness
- Excellent protection against graffiti / stains
- Excellent adhesion to painted surfaces
- Outstanding weather resistance
- High UV and chemical resistance
- Easy to apply
- Cures at room temperature
- Superior to Siloxane based coating
3D Matrix Coating Light is particularly suitable for car painted surfaces, such as one (1K) or two component (2K) paints (polyurethane or epoxy systems). The preferred use is for the exterior paint of cars, motorbikes, trucks, and buses
Depending on the substrate 3D Matrix Coating Light can be applied with microfiber applicators. The product is also suitable for spray application.
Process: HVLP-compressed air
Spray gun: e.g. SATA minijet HVLP
Working pressure: ca. 2 – 3 bar
Nozzles: 0.8 – 1.3 mm
The spray gun can be cleaned with n-butyl acetate, for example.
Density: ca. 0,86 g/cm3
Base: Organic + Inorganic Polysilazane
Curing: Normal ambient temperature/ 80° celcius
Shelf Life: 12 months
Container Size: 50ml
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
The product is for professional use and should be applied by approved applicators only. Test on a small area or apply a test coat before application.
APPLICATION OF V1 3D MATRIX COATING LIGHT
Shake well before use.
Get ready with 3 pieces of brand new, lint-free microfiber towel. (It is recommended that new towels to be rinsed or washed with water prior to use to reduce the loosing lint)
When first applying V1 3D Matrix Coating (Light) on substrate, it is recommended to condition the surface of the applicator block with 7-8 drops to prevent skipping or dry spots.
It is recommended to do a 2 ft. x 4 ft. area or 4 ft. x 4 ft. at a time.
Apply V1 3D Matrix Coating (Light) using normal pressure on applicator. Make sure the area is well covered. Always start from an edge to avoid excess on other panels. Work in controlled areas to remember where you previously applied. Work in horizontal or vertical movements repeatedly to ensure that product is penetrated through clear coat.
Wait for 30 seconds to 1 minute (time is vary from different countries and different season depending on temperature or humidity, ask distributors for recommendation), use first towel to level the product.
Go immediately over with second microfiber towel with polishing motion until the surface is free from residue.
Follow by the third towel (this is called the “insurance towel”) and go over the surface one extra time just to make sure you haven’t miss any streaks or excess residue.
When the whole car is applied, allow curing of coating to begin. Wait approximately 30-60 minutes before applying a second layer. Curing times depend on temperature and humidity. Applying the product too early will dissolve the previous layer. For the ultimate in hydrophobic results and durability, it can be over-coated with V1 3D Matrix Coating (Top).
INSPECTION LIGHTING SYSTEM
Lighting is utmost important during application of coating to paint. Spot Light like Scangrip is a good lighting system to inspect paint defects during polishing but in fact it is NOT RECOMMENDED to use to check the reside of coating left on paint. The suitable lighting system is Diffused Light.
PROCESSING & CURING
Product must be applied at an ambient temperature of at least + 5°C and a relative humidity of 30 % - 80 %. Avoid direct sunlight! Apply the coating in dry conditions. Any mistakes can be rectified within approx. 10 min of application. Traces of water in the applicator should also be avoided. Applicators dampened with water should not be used. The applicators cannot be reused once the coating has been applied. 3D Matrix Coating is dry-to-touch after about one hour.
The recommended curing conditions (until water resistant) are:
- Room temperature: 8 – 12 hours
- 80 °C (Infra-red curing): 2 hours
Curing can be accelerated by using IR Lamps after V1 Top is applied. Heating Polysilazanes results in crosslinking to form higher molecular weight polymers. Recommended settings for IR lamps are as following:
i. Minimum 80cm of distance above the surface.
ii. Maximum 80⁰C of surface temperature.
iii. Maximum 30 minutes on each panel.
The 3D Matrix coating is fully effective after 5 – 7 days’ curing at room temperature. During this time, the vehicles should not be driven into a vehicle wash.
